Countdown to Camp: 39

As we look ahead to training camp in late July, we're taking a daily retrospective look back at some random people, moments and games from Jets history...

The Greatest

Johnny Johnson was only a Jet for two years, but racked up nearly 2,700 yards from scrimmage and scored nine touchdowns. He had four 100-yard rushing games, including a 155-yard effort in the Jets' majestic 3-0 win against Washington in 1993.

In 1979, the Jets ended up 8-8, although only because they won their last three. We detailed that earlier in our countdown, here.

39 yards to the house

Here's Shonn Greene taking it to the end zone in the postseason win over the Bengals in 2009:


39 on the scoreboard

The Jets suffered a 39-3 loss against the Chargers in 1990. They've never scored 39 in a game.

Let us know if there's any connections to 39 that we missed...
